ps's discography dates back to 2001 with a handful of self-released albums, multiple participations in compilations and several online releases through different netlabels. His early sounds have often been described as experimental electronics, illbient, dark ambient, glitch and drone. His later work revolved more around noise, idm, industrial and powernoize. His latest releases have been focusing on the use of field recordings.
His latest audio work "A Moment to Sleep" explores field recordings and drone experiments that were captured and synthesized during a series of travels across Europe attending different events related to the demoscene, netaudio and hackerspace culture.
The album is a collage of moments. Moments in waiting. Moments in transit. Moments yearning to sleep or to stay awake. Introspective moments to purge and wander, to recall and forget. Internalized moments to return you to familiar grounds, to try new things with old formulas. Moments to think things shallow and deep. Moments to sleep.
